This is a well preserved ancient ruins. It is a good stop if you are an ancient history buff but you can’t get close as in other Roman areas. If close definitely stop by but unless you are a history buff look elsewhere in Rome.

Area Sacra Sant'Omobono Roma is an archaeological site and work is in progress, uncovering new evidence of life and society in republican Rome and even before that time. It is very close to other important sites, so it would be worth a quick visit.

Inadvertently unearthed during an excavation project ordered by Benito Mussolini, the fascinating Area Sacra dell'Argentina is one of the best sites to see the remains of Roman architecture from the Republican era.

Aventine
Contrary to the chaos of the city, the Aventine is
Rome’s oasis. A neighbourhood made up of a patchwork
of ancient churches, hidden gardens, private homes and
embassies, peace and quiet is top priority and the
vibe definitely friends and family. Take a walk around
the Aventine and you’ll find a treasure hunt of
